5 stars Does music can change a life? Ohhhh Yeeahh! This album helped me pass my teenage years. I remember my father hesitating to buy this, saying it was a little bit to crazy for me. I was about 13th. Hey! I was able to judge what could cause me brain damage or not. Then we got home, and Knots started to play in our living room. I just started to laugh. You know, this kind of nervous laugh that shows you don't really know what's going on in your head. I can confirm now that this album caused me bad bad brain injuries. This was the first prog album I listened to and this was pure magic in my ears. I 've had never heard anything like this before. I got hooked by the song's complex architectures, each tune was different and intrigating. Gentle Giant is definitely my favourite rock band. They're the summum. I can hardly describe my inner feelings when I listen to their music. So, before I completely loose my mind in deep emotions, let's talk about Octopus more objectively. ....eum ....To be honest, I just can't. It's delicate and hard-rocking. Many many instruments come surrounding you as the album begins, sax, piano, moog, vibes, violin and other weirdies. And what about the voices! Wonderful! ''Flaburgasting! Gentle Giant at they're top!
